In an emergency:

Report it to Accident and Emergency (A&E). Call 999 and request an ambulance.

Report it to the police. Call 999. There is an option for silent support if talking will put you in danger.

Non-emergency:

If it isn’t an emergency, you can speak to your GP/healthcare professional, call the police non-emergency number 101 or attend any local police station.
